After laying low for much of the last year, Alabama Shakes are ready to head back into the spotlight.
To start, the band is featured in the new episode of Live from the Artists Den, which will air February 6th on public television and via mobile platforms through Samsung’s Milk Video. The concert was filmed at the Loveless Barn in Nashville, Tennessee and sees the band performing songs from 2012’s Boys & Girls as well as material “earmarked for [their] much-anticipated follow-up.” Below, you can preview the episode via the band’s performance of “Always Alright”.
Additionally, Alabama Shakes have announced their first batch of tour dates in 2015. They’re set to play two nights at New York’s Beacon Theatre before embarking on the 14-city jaunt that includes festival appearances at Coachella and Bonnaroo. See the full schedule below.
